Braxton (aka Brax) was diagnosed with
B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-Cell ALL) in January of 2019. She is currently in remission with an end of chemo date set for May 28, 2021. After seeing first hand (75+ nights spent on Floor 5) how critical of a role Child Family Life and areas such as Kyle Rudolph's End Zone, the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio, and the "Row The Boat" Fleck Family Fund play in both the mental and physical recovery of cancer patients, she felt a strong desire to help others going through the same fight.
for more on Brax's story and journey.
TB1Fund - what is it and what does it mean? When Brax was initially diagnosed all of her family, friends, and teammates rallied around her and formed Team Brax. Taking that a step further, her social media name is TeamBrax1, and that is where the TB1 comes from. And why? To give Brax a platform to help kids and families going through the life changing events cancer plays in the lives of everyone affected by cancer. Cancer doesn't discriminate.
TB1F's mission is to positively affect every child and family who comes through the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Whether that be financial support in areas of basic need, positive outreach through social functions, Brax's exclusive 5th Floor T-shirt for all cancer patients and by helping Kyle Rudolph's End Zone, the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio, and the "Row The Boat" Fleck Family Fund with their incredible programming for both patients and families, TB1F and Brax want to make everyone's experience and recovery as positive as it can be.
